A Johnson City police crash report said Matthew G. Bentley, 28, was driving his 1994 Isuzu pickup truck north on Gilbreath Drive into the intersection on a green light, when Eva E. Renton, 24, was driving east on West State of Franklin Road in a 2004 Toyota Camry and drove through the red light to hit Bentley’s vehicle on the driver’s side and flipping his truck onto its passenger side. 

Bentley suffered unknown injuries as a result of the crash and was charged with driving on a suspended license.
